Today I have the freedom to spend as much time in Asia as I want, but that was not always the case.
A new man started pursuing me and after a few calls shared how much he liked me.
I had made no sexual innuendos nor teasing, so was taken aback when he said, “I want to make love to you.” I’ve heard this from a number of men and generally shake it off as they are lonely and horny and socially awkward reentering the dating world so don’t realize how off-putting that can be.
I once met a girl from Poland who I was so attracted to that I couldn’t keep my fingers off her for the two weeks we spent together.
When she asked me if she was my girlfriend I told her that the distance is way too far.
Let me just get this out: Long distance relationships (LDRS) suck. We were in the same time zone, but 10.5 hours away by bus (more, if there was traffic). I’m not going to lie, the first couple weeks, I sat in my apartment wondering how this was going to work out. Nearly a year and a half after we began our long-distance relationship, we both said “I do” at a small ceremony in Texas and moved to a tiny apartment in Japan together.
